I would like to include references
in my thesis in the following style:
In the text (Smith et al)
with no full stop after the “al” and not italicised
At the end of the document in the form:
Wu, Y., Chen, L., Scott, P.G. and Tredget, E.E. (2007) Mesenchymal stem cells enhance wound healing through differentiation and angiogenesis. Stem Cells 25 , 2648-2659.
Yamaguchi, Y., Mann, D.M. and Ruoslahti, E. (1990) Negative regulation of transforming growth factor-beta by the proteoglycan decorin. Nature 346 , 281-284.
This style is from the equine veterinary journal but I cannot get rid of the full stop after the et al and it is in italics. Furthermore, I don’t want a paragraph space appearing between each reference in the section at the end.
Advice much appreciated.
